There was a series of drive-by shootings involving paintballs and people minding their business in Seattle last week, including at least five around Seattle University.

The university issued a community crime advisory last week stating three school members reported to the Department of Public Safety that a red Mini Cooper with four men inside had pulled up next to them while they were walking southbound on 12th Avenue on Monday, Nov. 20. One occupant reportedly shot one of the school members with a paintball gun before the vehicle drove away.

According to police reports, a woman in the 5000 block of Wilson Avenue South reported around 6:40 p.m. Nov. 21 that she was walking with her parents when she was shot in the side of her head by a paintball from a moving vehicle. The orange paintball caused the left side of her face to swell up.

One man was having a smoke with friends outside a bar in the 1500 block of 13th Avenue around 10 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 21, when he heard a pop and felt his pant leg move.

A security staff member said he saw a Maroon Crossover-type vehicle pull forward from the nearby intersection, heard a pop from the vehicle and then watched the small SUV drive away at a high rate of speed. He said the windows were tinted.

South Dispatch reported a similar call around the same time, with a partial plate identified that was connected to a red 2015 Fiat 500L. The vehicle had been reported in five other paintball gun calls, according to the police report.

Around 10:30 p.m. that night, police responded for another paintball incident at South Alaska Street and Rainier Avenue South.

A woman said she’d been waiting at a bus stop when she heard a pop and then felt a stinging pain on the back of her left arm. She identified a red sedan. She did not have paint residue on her arm, according to another police report, but did have a quarter-sized mark on her arm.

There was another call that came from the area around South Oregon Street and 35th Avenue South on Nov. 21.

Seattle U’s advisory states two community members walking separately around 12th Avenue and East Jefferson Street and 12th and East Cherry Street reported being shot at from a moving vehicle around 11:20 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 22.

A woman came into the East Precinct around 11:30 p.m. Nov. 22, to report she’d been shot in the face with a paintball in the 100 block of 11th Avenue.

She said she’d been walking outside her building, looking at her phone, when an object hit her in the mouth. She saw someone shooting paintball out of a vehicle, but said she did not get a good look at the vehicle or occupants.

The Capitol Hill Times has reached out to the Seattle Police Department to find out if any arrests have been made in these cases, but still has not heard back.
